Andrea moved from Connecticut to Burlington ten years ago after falling in love with a native Vermonter, and Vermont, and never looked back. The former city girl now resides in a small mountain town with her amazing husband, two tiny bosses, and one equally imperious pup. When she's not busy creating healthy(ish) treats for her family and friends, you can find her swimming, doing yoga, reading, or hiking. Andrea loves to connect people with other people by creating community-building events and hosting social gatherings. Getting outdoors is what keeps her sane, along with practicing mindfulness and jumping into ice-cold water.
